Yesterday, I was able to create an Android apk package, and today, I cannot. I am trying to ship this new apk by end of the day, and this roadblock was a bit unexpected. I hate those "please someone help me right away" posts, but if someone has some insight here, it would be appreciated.
I'm running VS 2012 on a Win 8.1 PC.
After successfully creating an Android release package yesterday, I did do some reconfiguration this morning trying to upgrade my environment to support iOS 7 development from Visual Studio. (I don't know if that's a possible cause).
Now, the Tools - Publish Android Application menu is no longer enabled for my project.
I have my Build configuration set to Release, Platform = Any CPU, Linking Sdk and User Assemblies, Use Shared Runtime.
The app will compile fine, and I can deploy it directly to my test device and the app runs fine. But I can't create a proper apk file.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled all my Xamarin tools, and I'm now running Xamarin.Android 4.8.01013, and Xamarin.IOS 1.4.2 (although Visual Studio keeps prompting me to upgrade to Xamarin.IOS for Visual Studio 1.3).
I have a Business License which is in good standing. Heck, it worked fine yesterday.
Any insight is appreciated.
